WATCH: Obama Rips Trump, Attempts to Take Credit for Booming Trump Economy

On Friday Barack Obama thought it was a good time to come out of his hole and rip President Trump. During a speech at the University of Illinois Obama rips Trump and attempts to take credit for the booming economy.

Let’s not forget that Obama is the only president to never see a single year of 3.0% GDP growth. Yet here he is trying to take credit for what the economy is doing after he left office.

Not only that, but he called out Trump by name.

“It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause. He is just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years,” Obama said.

Soon after he began whining about how he isn’t getting the credit he gets for the surging economy.

Let’s take a look at some of the real numbers, per The Gateway Pundit:

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) announced its August jobs report Friday morning. Unemployment is down to 3.9%, while more people are employed in the US than at any time in history. But the big news is that this century, since the year 2000, more than 20% of all job increases have occurred during the Trump years.

The US GDP for the second quarter accelerated to a whopping 4.1% under the leadership of President Donald Trump.

This is another BIG Trump win.
This doubles the first quarter growth of 2.2%

Atlanta Fed projects a 3rd Quarter GDP of 4.6%!

Give up Obama. The economy tanked for eight straight years then suddenly as soon as your presidency ends, the numbers suddenly begin surging? Get real.
